*Beat-boxing rapper, Biz Markie DJed an unorthodox event for Hip Hop artists — a Docker’s party. He helped invited guests celebrate and showcase the men’s apparel maker’s Fall 2011 collection at Tribeca’s Hudson & Broad showroom in NYC.

There’s not much Markie to say to justify the booking, but in an attempt to explain, he told the Wall Street Journal, “Well, somebody contacted me and, you know, I like Dockers. I wear Dockers. They’re comfortable. I’m a comfortable man … Dockers is a mature jean. You can wear it anywhere. Plus, I just love Dockers.”

Despite the rapper being known for his fat gold chains and exuberant rapping style, the company claims to have tapped the “Just a Friend” artist to “update its image with more modern fits and styles.”

“Biz Markie is a classic,” said a rep for Dockers. “He’s a good representation of an Alpha male who embraces passion, a certain attitude and individualism. He fits well with the new Dockers Alpha khaki that’s launching for Fall 2011 — classic, versatile and the first of its kind.”
